Your Dream Vacation is Here

The Islander Hotel, Rarotonga

The Islander Hotel is a small boutique Hotel located on a secluded beachfront only two minutes walk across the road from the Rarotonga International Airport, and a short 5 minute drive to downtown Avarua.
This property features 11 air-conditioned, Polynesian inspired Cabanas, that each have 1 King Bed and 1 Single Bed, a private ensuite bathroom with welcome toiletries, ceiling fans, mini-fridge and tea & coffee making facilities.
This friendly little hotel is well known for its fantastic waterfront location, stunning panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, surf club character, large outdoor entertainment & dining areas, daily sunsets and relaxed tropical ambience.
The Islander Restaurant and Tiki Bar is where your complimentary daily tropical breakfast is served, providing a casual and relaxed atmosphere.
The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week with their selected island nights held every Tuesday – an authentic Cook Islands cultural experience. Themed nights and specials are also offered on selected days of the week. (Please note that the restaurant is open to the public as well.)
There is also the ‘Hula Bar’ which sits close to the beach and has an open deck that overlooks the lagoon. Hula Bar offers an all day happy hour and is a great place to unwind and mix and mingle with other guests or locals.
The Islander Hotel has an Airport Transit Lounge for visitors transiting Rarotonga to the outer islands or waiting until 2pm to check into another hotel. They provide a complimentary bus shuttle service twice daily to downtown Avarua or Black Rock Beach—you’ll be spoilt for choice. There is also luggage storage available onsite as well as a Day Spa and an ATM machine.
The Islander Hotel is recognized as Rarotonga’s most “island styled” property and certainly portrays a slice of culture and service of the people of the Cook Islands. It caters well for holidaymakers, travellers en-route to the outer islands and for the discerning business travellers.
